Can you believe that I still have these sweet little Valentines cards from my childhood.
My mom saved and dated every one.
( I am no where near that organized.)
Above are a few from my still best friend Sherry.. ( before she could even spell my name right)
This one ( below) is from my grandparents in 1976.
The funny thing is..
I can still remember receiving a few of them.
Last year the girls and I started a new Valentines tradition.
It started with a request from a fellow blogger Melinda at Country Dreaming who had asked her readers to make some valentine cards to send to the kids at the Kansas City Children's Hospital.
It was such a great project that the girls and I were excited to do it again this year.
We bought a few supplies, made some hot chocolate and spent
this cold January day together creating joy for not only some special children, but for ourselves as well.
As we laughed and chatted the whole time.
The girls really get into making these happy cards.
Now, they are all sealed with a kiss and ready to be sent.
Please join us and Melinda in sending some extra love to some kids who need a smile.
For more information visit Country Dreaming.
As well as donating the cards to the Kansas City kids
we are also creating Valentines for our own Johns Hopkins Children's Hospital.
I saw this awesome idea on Pinterest and thought that they would be perfect.
These are just a few test samples.
Now that I know how easy that are to make..
We've got about 100 more to go!
